Have you ever tried this method of dyeing eggs? Onion skins are wrapped around eggs and hard boiled. Once unwrapped, marbled eggs appear with beautiful variations of color.
It’s so simple, easy, and pretty too! What I love about some of these natural dyes is the subtle color, instead of the fake brightness of the dye kits. (See how to produce DIY homemade dyes too).
- White Eggs
- Onion skins (try to keep them as big as possible when unpeeling)
- Rubber bands or kitchen twine
- Thin cloth, such as cheesecloth (cloth napkins or cheesecloth are probably your best bet)
- Pot with lid to boil eggs
Place in the cloth or cheesecloth and wrap it in the towel, securing it with a rubberband or twine.
2) Place in a pot and cover with cool water. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and cover. Allow the eggs to sit in the hot water for 15 minutes. Then pour off the hot water and cool with running cold water. Unwrap your eggs and admire the pattern. Serve warm or refrigerate.
What about you? Have you naturally dyed eggs before? I would love to hear about your experience!
